From a fan's perspective, Gene Autry was perhaps the best model. He left no children to support, and a few hundred million dollars to carry on his legacy so all of his films and tv shows were restored. The amount Sam Nelson is requesting on the online donation website is only $10,000. I don't think it is unreasonable to ask fans to kick in something for a show that is not going to be a big money maker. I wish Linda Kaye Henning would take a similar interest in The Beverly Hillbillies. I still worry Mr. Nelson hasn't thought through all the issues involved with his project.
